Folks,

can someone of you with a keen Linux eye and some valgrind knack give me
a hand, and check why the current POV-Ray master branch bombs during the
"make check" step (more specifically while parsing the "biscuit.pov"
advanced sample scene) on Ubuntu?

Thanks for your effort; unfortunately, the valgrind output is of little
use to me without human-readable stack trace information; can you try
again with a version of POV-Ray configured to include debug information?

Thanks.

Fortunately that looks indeed related to the most recent changes I made ;)

Actually no, it wasn't really linked to the "bulk" of the changes at all
(which were about making global variables accessible even if the same
identifier is also used locally) -- but I introduced a new keyword, and
pushed the updated `reservedwords.h` to the repo but not the matching
`reservedwords.cpp`.

So there's what happens if those two files get out of sync.

Everything(*) is fine now, thanks.


(* Then again, this is software development, so maybe I should rephrase
that ;))
